Once upon a time, if the nerve in your tooth was diseased, you’d probably lose that tooth. Today with a special dental procedure called a root canal therapy we save that tooth. Inside each tooth there is a pulp which provides nutrients and nerves to the tooth, it runs like a thread down through the root. When the pulp is diseased or injured, the pulp tissue dies.
If you don’t remove it, your tooth gets infected and you could lose it.
Endodontic Therapy or Root Canal Treatment entails the removal of this diseased pulp, cleaning and shaping the canals and filling the resultant canal space with a biocompatible material (gutta percha) to keep the bacteria from reforming in the canal.
At the Dr. Turners’ Speciality Dental Centre, root canal treatment is usually done in a single sitting with cutting edge technology. We value your time and multiple sitting endodontics is now outdated and a thing of the past.
